Through the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Kentucky expanded Medicaid eligibility to those with incomes up to 138 percent of the poverty line — or $32,900 for a family of four in 2014. More than 310,000 Kentuckians were enrolled in the Medicaid expansion by the end of 2014. According to an independent study, the expansion will help create jobs, new tax revenue and significant savings in the state budget, as shown below.
